Little Miller Act Statutes

On state and federal projects across the entire United States, prime contractors are required to post bonds guarantying the performance of their contractual duties and/or the payment of their subcontractors and materials suppliers. If unpaid on these projects, the supplier or subcontractor can file a “lien” or “bond claim” against the bond. On federal projects, these bond requirements and claims are governed by the federal Miller Act. Each state has a “Little Miller Act,” which is a state statute based on the federal Miller Act.
